Genus Overview: Hydrangea serrata

This species originates in the mountains of Japan and Korea. Though it is purportedly hardier than H. macrophylla we seldom see flowers in USDA zone 5b; as such we are listing all of the following cultivars as better doers in zones 6 to 9. The ovate to lanceolate foliage tends to be narrower than its close cousin, H. macrophylla. The smaller leaves support an over all more delicate appearance. And as with H. macrophylla there are also both lace caps and mop heads occurring in this species and will be noted below. We've seen this group also listed as H. macrophylla var. serrata. All prefer fertile soil to sandy loam. All of the following cultivars are cutting grown.
